To close out the weekend (October 6-9) with The Bourbon Social, the last event was the Buffalo Trace Distillery Brunch. Everyone loves brunch, and if you don’t, what kind of person are you?!?
Over the last week (October 6-9), there were four amazing events called, The Bourbon Social. The Bourbon Social is a festival celebrating the craft and culture of Bourbon and Southern food. Earlier this year, in February, April, and June were The Bourbon Social Presents… events (see: Beer, Bourbon, and Bacon Garden Party).
For those that don’t know, Buffalo Trace is located in Frankfort, Kentucky. Buffalo Trace is the oldest continuously operating distillery in the United States. Even during Prohibition (1920-1933), they were still producing bourbon. They were allowed by the federal government to continue distilling bourbon for medicinal purposes. Only six distilleries were allowed to produce medicinal bourbon, and there were six million prescriptions written JUST IN Kentucky!
